TECHNOLOGY’S IMPACT ON ACCOUNTING & FINANCE JOBS

CFOs are three times as likely to see job gains instead of losses due to advanced technology.

Executives predict there will be:

Significantly more/some more jobs created than lost 59%
No net change in jobs 22%
Significantly more/some more jobs lost than created 19%

When asked if tech makes positions in the profession more or less appealing, CFOs said:

Less appealing 19%
No difference 20%
More appealing 61%

Top 3 reasons these jobs are more appealing:

1. Greater insights into the business to help with decision making
2. The opportunity to work with advanced tools
3. More time for higher-value work
